I was unable to sleep last night so I decided to make a list of up to 5 favourite artists for each letter of the alphabet. I have an alphabetized list of cd’s/vinyls/tapes I own which I’ve been continuously updating for the last 8 or 9 years, so I used that to make it an easier task. For some letters it was VERY tough to limit it to just 5 bands whereas for others it was tough to come up with hardly any that I genuinely enjoy.

Anyways I thought this would make for an interesting thread even if people decide they want to list one artist for each letter..

Here’s what I came up with…

A – Agalloch, Absurd, Acheron, Alice In Chains, Amebix

B – Burzum, Bathory, Beherit, Bestial Warlust, Blasphemy

C – Carnivore, Cocteau Twins, Current 93, Celtic Frost, Crass

D – Danzig, Death, Dead Can Dance, Discharge, Death In June

E – Emperor, Eucharist, Enslaved, Entombed, Enthroned

F – Fullmoon, Funeral Mist, Frozen Shadows, Forgotten Tomb, Flame of War

G – Goatmoon, Goatlord, Gorguts, Graveland, Grand Belial’s Key

H – Hellhammer, Holocausto, Hate Forest, Hades, Havohej

I – Ildjarn, Incantation, Immortal, Iron Maiden, Immortalis

J – Joy Division, Judas Iscariot, The Jesus And Mary Chain, Joyless, Judas Priest

K – Kreator, Killing Joke, King Diamond, Kroda, Kristallnacht

L – Legion of Doom, Leviathan, Lust, Lustmord, Lush

M – Mortuary Drape, Mercyful Fate, Merciless, Morbid Angel, Moonblood

N – Nocturnus, Nile, Nunslaughter, Nokturnal Mortum, Nocturnal Graves

O – Obituary, Ohtar, Order From Chaos, Onslaught, Of the Wand And the Moon

P – Pearl Jam, Peste Noire, Possessed, Primordial, Primus

Q – Queens of the Stone Age

R – Repulsion, Rotting Christ, Root, Rammstein, Razor

S – Slayer, Sepultura, Sarcofago, Sodom, The Sisters of Mercy

T – Temnozor, Tool, Thor’s Hammer, Type O Negative, Treblinka

U – Ulver, Unleashed, Urfaust, Ungod, Unholy

V – Veles, Venom, Velvet Cacoon, Voivod, Vulcano

W – Wolfnacht, Woods of Ypres, Woodtemple, Warloghe, White Zombie

X – Xasthur, Xibalba

Y - Yamatu

Z – Zyklon, Zyklon-B, Zwan


So post away my fellow aspies!! :P

There's a night club in Seattle called Blue Moon where my band has played a few times. Right down the block from the club is the five story apartment building where Layne Staley died. I actually didn't know about that till six months ago. I love me some AIC!
